Ingredients

  • 6 Tablespoons Olive oil
  • 6 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 28 ounce Can crushed tomatoes with basil
  • 1/4 cup Capers, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Anchovy paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon Red pepper flake
  • 1/4 cup Kalamata olives, chopped plus more for garnish
  • 1 can Bella Portofino tuna
  • 4-6 Zucchini, spiralized
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt, for the zucchini

Instructions

  • Add the olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute.  Add the tomatoes, capers, anchovy paste, red pepper flake, and olives.  Reduce to low and let simmer uncovered for about 20 minutes.
  • While the sauce cooks, add spiralized zucchini to a large microwave safe bowl and season with salt.  Microwave for 3 minutes.  You could also steam in a covered skillet for a few minutes until soft.  Drain zucchini in a colander to remove excess moisture.
  • When the sauce is reduced, add the Bella Portofino tuna and stir to combine.    
  • For serving: place zucchini noodles on a plate followed by puttanesca sauce and extra kalamata olives for garnish.
